What a match this was to send Hammer’s fans home with some well needed festive cheer after a miserable run of results under the now sacked Pellegrini. Not only has Moyes brought in some hope, but the team played with passion and purpose and showed what they can do when set up to play to their strengths.
The team were painful to watch under Pellegrini’s tenure where we had no width, no chasing for the ball and no pressing of the opposition to put them under pressure. Fans called for passion and the players delivered. Fans called for Haller and Anderson to step up and they did. Fans said Noble was losing his touch and he proved them wrong.
Moyes asked the team to win the fans over and they did with this performance. Bournemouth were poor, but you still have to win these games to make progress in this league. Noble deserved his man of the match vote and Haller’s bicycle kick showed us what he can do when the ball is whipped in from the wings.
A team performance and lets hope with more time Moyes can get the team back in to winning ways. COYI!
